Knowledge translation (KT) is a bridge between research and real-world practice. It addresses both the dissemination of information and the implementation of evidence into practice in an effort to strengthen health systems and improve health outcomes.

Practicing Knowledge Translation (PKT): Implementing evidence. Achieving outcomes, offered by the KT Program at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada, is an intensive course designed for health professionals aiming to implement change by applying best practices in KT.

In this webinar, Dr. Julia Moore will describe the key definitions and concepts in KT that are covered in the PKT course, including distinguishing between implementation and dissemination activities in KT, what it means to design a program for practice implementation, and how to consider levels of evidence. Dr. Moore will also provide a broad overview of how the PKT course is structured to meet the individual needs of participants.

This session is offered by Webex from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. All registration requests should be sent to Melissa Courvoisier: courvoisierm@smh.ca by Wednesday, June 15th at 12:00 p.m. ET.
